And the Duke of Sussex will come alone while Meghan and the kids stay at home in the US.

The couple’s attendance had been up in the air since they made a series of shocking unsubstantiated claims about the Royal Family.

Harry is expected to have a fairly quick trip to the UK and will only attend the coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey.

The Duke is so desperate to be at Archie’s birthday party that he will miss a number of other events during the bumper long weekend.

But which famous faces will be in attendance? Here’s everything you need to know.

Doria Ragland

Doria is reportedly a very hands-on grandma to Archie, three, and Lilibet, one, and was indispensable to the Sussexes when they first became parents.

The 66-year-old has a home in the View Park-Windsor Hills neighbourhood of LA, just an hour-and-a-half drive from where Harry and Meghan live.

Doria has had many careers and now works as the boss of an elderly care company and a yoga instructor.

She previously worked as a travel agent and owned a small business, before filing for bankruptcy in the mid-2000s.

Tennis legend Serena Williams has known Meghan for years having first met in 2010.

The sports ace has also grown close to Harry over the years.

Meghan has frequently been spotted in the stands at her pal’s big tennis matches – cheering on from the sidelines.

After Markle’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, Williams took to Instagram to call her friend “truly noble.”

It’s also believed Serena’s daughter Olympia is a playmate of Archie and Lili, so they could all get together for a fun celebration on May 6.

Meghan and Harry’s bombshell Oprah interview left viewers gobsmacked back in 2021 as the world tuned into watch.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed no subject was “off limits” during the explosive chat.

It saw the couple speak candidly to Oprah Winfrey about their ups and downs as royals.

The talk show legend was also in attendance at their wedding in 2018 and she has repeatedly come to their defence over the years.

In their Netflix docuseries, Harry and Meghan revealed that Oprah was one of the only people to visit them at Frogmore Cottage.

And she could well be coming over for Archie’s birthday celebrations.

George and Amal Clooney

A-lister George Clooney and wife Amal were invited to the Sussexes’ wedding back in 2018.

And the Duke and Duchess reportedly spent the weekend at the Clooney’s house in August later that year.

“The Clooney’s had personally invited Meghan and Harry to their home at the beginning of the summer with an open invitation,” a source told US Weekly .

“George and Amal were so happy to host Meghan and Harry. Harry and George have a special bond and friendship.”

Speaking about his friendship with the Sussexes, Clooney told the MailOnline in 2019 that they had enjoyed dinner parties together.

“We live not too far from one another and we have dinners and stuff and we’re friends with them for all the reasons that you’re friends with anybody,” the actor explained.

“They’re just really nice, fun, kind people. They’re a very loving couple, and they’re going to be great parents.”

Amal also helped organise Meghan’s baby shower in New York in 2019, so they already know how to party together.

Hollywood star Orlando Bloom has struck up quite the friendship with Prince Harry.

The pair got friendly after becoming neighbours when the Sussexes moved to Montecito, California in 2020.

Bloom, who lives just round the corner from the Prince said: “

This guy is so nice, and I think he’s got a great sense of humour. I hope he maintains that through this because they’re sort of on a pedestal. We’re showing real adoration to them in one form or another.

“I try to justify it, because quite frankly, if I’m honest, it’s not like me to poke fun at anyone but it is done with affection.”

However, Orlando would have quite the dilemma on his hands as fiancée Katy Perry is performing at the Coronation concert on May 7.

If invited, the Lord of The Rings legend would need to decide whether to attend Archie’s party or watch his partner sing at Windsor Castle.

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi

Chat show host Ellen DeGeneres and actress wife Portia de Rossi have become very close with Meghan and Harry over the years.

According to Meghan, the Ellen DeGeneres Show host was responsible for pushing her to adopt her dog Bogart, a Labrador-shepherd mix.

The TV star even saw Meghan and Harry’s children on Halloween back in 2021.

Ellen has a close relationship with the Sussexes and spent time with their kids so it would make sense if Ellen and Portia attended Archie’s celebrations.
